Somebody's probably replaced it at some time in the past by cutting off the old one and pushing a new one in from the wrong side. Or it could just be sh*te quality control at the factory.

All the current exploded diagrams from the main parts suppliers show those bolts going in towards the suspension turret, so I could be completely wrong about it being a safety feature, but that's what I was told by a retired Triumph engineer when I asked the same question.

With modern lock nuts you'll be fine whichever way round they go in.
